Accounting is the language of business – an international language that will take you places. Accounting is about providing facts and information systems, and helping others understand those systems, so they’re equipped to plan and make decisions.
Accounting at Otago is a professional programme. We offer two paths to gaining professional membership – through Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) and CPA Australia.
Finance is about deciding how money is spent in the real world. Every person and every organisation raises and spends money. Finance examines the theory and practice of this process, with particular attention to the measurement and management of risk.
Otago is a programme partner for the CFA programme. Our curriculum is closely tied to professional practice, and well-suited for students intending to sit the CFA exams.
